Meanwhile, Atletico are reportedly close to concluding a deal for Griezmann's France teammate Thomas Lemar, who could move from Monaco for around €60m.

The 22-year-old Monaco winger was on the verge of crossing the English Channel last year when Arsenal and Liverpool made high powered bids in the final hours of the summer transfer window.

Monaco are set to earn a transfer fee worth €72m from Lemar's proposed move to Atletico Madrid.

Antoine Griezmann says he has made a decision on his future but refused to clarify where he will play next season when he spoke to reporters at France's World Cup camp in Russian Federation on Tuesday.

The forward has been expected to confirm his future before the World Cup and said Saturday that was still the case.

Fellow France forward Griezmann says he has decided on his future - but has refused to say whether he will leave Atletico this summer.

To stop Spanish reporters from constantly bothering Griezmann about his plans, team France's press officer only allowed questions to be asked in French during a conference on Tuesday.

Griezmann's future has been the subject of intense speculation.

Lemar played a key role for Leonardo Jardim's young side as they ended Paris Saint-Germain's dominance by claiming the Ligue 1 title in impressive fashion in 2016-17.
